“Excellent views if you have the right apartment”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the P & V resort in Manilva (Terrazas Costa Del Sol)
Firstly the good points
Great views (choose your apartment wisely)
Excellent location for visiting the surrounding area ,Marbella,Gibraltar,Ronda and much much more. ( Car strongly advised)
Apartments are excellent,well equipped,spacious and very clean.
Staff helpful and friendly.
Animation team worked very hard and catered well for kids and and adults alike.
Kids club available for children of all ages.

Bad points
Not many really
The food at the barbecue area was good but portions very small.
The pool is in an excellent location with stunning views but a little on the small side.
Mini market is a joke to be honest,no fruit/veg very little stock at all so don't count on this for your supplies.

Things to consider
90% of the people using this complex are French
A car is a must
No town or amenities within walking distance(except the beach which we never used)
Great location and stunning views of Gibraltar and Morocco,the view from the apartment was very important for us and were lucky enough to be able to change our apartment on arrival as we were allocated a ground floor apartment with an obscured view.
1st floor or better still 2nd floor apartment is recommended and around the pool area would be best.

Conclusion
A great place to stay if you want to relax enjoy the views and are planning to visit the surrounding area
If you want a 24hr party it's not for you

Room Tip: 1st or 2nd floor room with sea view highly recommended

Not an easy place to find,MUST have a car, nothing in walking distance, and NOT suitabe for the elerly or disabled. Lack of kitchen appliances, toaster,oven, no draining board,and only 5 coat hangers.Breakfast,both English and Continental,good. Evening meal which we didn't have but observed,was of the salad bar help yourself type costing 21 euros. it didn't appear value for money. No local bus or train services. No English tv. After all these comments we would return to this complex. Staff were very nice,polite, and hard working.

Room Tip: We stayed in Ronda 1211 which was quiet and had Great views.

Being a bilingual (french/english) family, we were happy to find Pierre & Vacances had a resort in Andalucia. A majority of the guests are french. Terrazas Costa del Sol is made for families with kids under 10 and for this reason, our stay was very positive as a whole. We had a two bedroom apartment with a large living room and balcony with a view on Gibraltar and North Africa. It was clean, spacious, still looked new, and a great value. The pool is on the small side but is nice - the photo on the web site makes it look bigger. But our boys, 9, 7, & 4, had a blast. They loved the kids club and mini-disco. For those that want a "quieter" environment, the hotel has a shuttle to a semi-private beach, Sol y Sal, 5 minutes away. There were very few negatives for us (others who like to complain may have more). The only one worth mentioning is DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER DEMI-PENSION. The food, for adults anyway, is disgusting. The quality became a joke amongst several other guests we met - the cooks (only one present) training evidently consisted of how to use a can-opener. However, the restaurant at the semi-private beach is decent. We would like to go back next summer, but will only take the apartment.

We booked a two weeks holiday with pierre et vacances and about two weeks before departure they cancelled aur trip. We already had a written confirmation and paid the full amount per credit card! They were not able to offer a suitable accomodation, so we had to search for our own again. That cost time what we do not have (two small childs), money...Compensation? No way!!
Just think, if you would cancel the trip two weeks before you go, you had to pay at least 25% anyway! I can not recommend pierre et vacances and will definetly never go with them!

Just back from a 2 week break with my wife and 3yr old. After picking up hire car (essential ) follow signs for Cadiz then follow signs for AP-68 (toll rd 16 euros)coming off at jnct 133, go under motorway past the petrol station then follow A7 towards Manilva. When you reach the Manilva roundabout double back on yourself and it is about 2OOM on your right, get use to this road as you will see alot of it ! The complex was extremely quiet which suited us as we like a quiet pool area but this would not suit everyone. The accomodation was good, bedroom with full en suite,a seperate toilet/showeroom if in 2 bedroom ,large living room with decent kitchen area but no oven . The vievs from the balcony are amazing looking out over the sea to gibraltar and north africa .One area I would advise you to check is the locks on the windows and balcony doors ours just slid open even when locked, I complained at reception and maintenance sorted it out within 10 minutes! Security boxes are 20euros p/w . One area we were not happy with was the fact that in a 2 week period we had one change of bed linen and towels, thats what the maid service consists of, nothing else, you are expected to clean the apartment yourself, if we had known this we probably would have looked elsewhere as you expect more from a 4 star resort!
The pool area was really nice with seperate kiddies pool and a very bored lifeguard as it was so quiet! Dont expect an infinity pool as it is camera trickery in the brochure but again the views are breathtaking. There is a pool bar and restaurant onsite which are average, definately worth driving to Puerto De La Duquesa or Sabanillas for a great choice of restaurants which were only about a 10 min drive.
The supermarket on site is a joke the nearest supermarket is Eroski which is about a 5min drive down the A7 (not open sundays), if you want a hypermarket try Carrefour just follow signs for Mcdonalds in Estepona and you wont miss it .
The complex makes a great base for visiting the area, Marbella, Puerto Banus and Gibraltar all in easy reach.
All things considered we had a great family holiday, the complex is perhaps a bit remote for some but as long as you have a car its fine.
